When Lawman* J. Taylor presented

William 'Jennings, of 3123 Laclede 
Avenue, came, to the polling place 
about six o'clock and offered to vote 
and was immediately challenged by 
the Democratic Challenger on the 
ground that he had bean convicted of 
aome offense and had done time, which 
information he got by referring to a 
list in his possession. Jennings denied 
this and insisted upon voting. Be was 
given a net of ballots, which he pro- 
pared and returned to the- judge. His 
ballot was put into the box. As soon 
as. bis ballot was put into the box he 
waa arrested. 

William' Davis, of 3013 Laclede Av- 
enue, tame to the polling place about 
7:30 in the morning aid" offered to

cratic Challenger, Chna. A. Hills, who 
stated that be .had boon convicted of 
some offense and was not entitled to 
vote. Davis denied sunt and insisted 
upon voting, aaying that ho "would 
either vote tbere or die there." Upon 
voting ha was nrrested.. The attitude 
in bin ease of the, police, was the earn* 
as in the previous cases, seemingly 
unusually anxious to make arrest. Davis 
waa' bald in the polls for some time, I 
presume they war* waiting for the 
■agon. I telephoned for the election 
commissioners to come out to the polls, 
which they did. Upon their arrival 
tbey cited the law pertaining to each 
cases and Davie was released. 

Howard Franklin, of 3002 Pine Street, 
presented himself at the polling place 
about 7:30 in tho morning He wns 
'challenged by Chna. A. Hills, the Demo- 
cratic Challenger, on the ground that 
he had been eon vie ted and had served 
time in the workhouaa -He denied

A great many American white men and women who have taken 
the pains to note the disgraceful manner in which Negro subjects of 
this country have been treated, are somewhat alarmed and in agreat 
measure, in doubt, as to whether Negroes will remain loyal to the 
country in case of war with any foreign nation; these white men 
and women feel that in view of the many wrongs that have been 
heaped upon the American Negro since ru'a emancipation, he will 
avail himself of the opportunity in some: manner to get revenge. 

To alleviate this mental unrest and at the same time to prove 
to those who indulge in this thought, that the American Negro 
does NOT hold malice like the American white man, it behooves 
us to delve into the past, that the future may be clearly understood. 
In the early sixties, after more than two hundred years a 
slave, steeped in ignorance, bought and sold like so many cattle, 
history tells us that many fought nobly to help preserve the Union 
which we all are now enjoying, while many others remained upon 
their master's plantation like a true and faithful dog, guarded 
the master's wives and daughters while the masters were at the 
front fighting to keep them in slavery. IF THBRE WAS EVER 

When the news of the proclamation freeing, all slaves went 
flashing over America, and slaves were told' that they were free 
and could go where they cared to go, Negroes did not turn upon 
the men who for mqre than two centuries had driven them at the 
end of the slave lash, and treated them as though they were in- 
human and their bodies were but things to be abused; instead of 
seeking revenge, the Negro, like a child who for the first time suc- 
cessfully walks alone, toddled out into a great big heartless world, 
untutored, penniless, some hatl.ess, some coatless and some with- 
out shoes on their feet; some wandered away from their former 
slave homes in a delirium of aimless joy, and like a-captivebird 
that haa suddenly been liberated, they knew not wither they went; 
but only knew ( that they were free. Others, dazed and stupefied 
by the knowledge that they were no longer slaves, and would no 
.longer have to undergo the torture of the overseers whip, knowing 
their destitute condition and frightened at the thought of 
gijing Out into a cold and mnfeeling world, unknown, unwelcome 
and uneducated, begged to be allowed to remain with their former 
masters. Even these held no bitterness in their hearts reward their 
former owners ann those who had misused them. 

In all of America's wars, during slavery and after slavery the 
men of the Negro race have shown their loyalty to the country in 
no uncertain tone; for when ANY man, be he white or black is 
patriotic enough to give his life's blood for his country^ knowing 
at the same time that he is hot treated as other men, can any sane 
person doubt his loyalty '.' 

If the Negro was loyal to this country whan his children were 
being sold on the* block to the highest, bidder, when his life would 
be bartered for gold and when his daughters would be prostituted 
and raped almost before his eyes, why should ha be disloyal NOW? 
Shoved out into the world, with the unsympat hizing northerner 
on .one aide and the hot-headed, revengeful [southerner on the oth- 
er; left to make his way the best he might and later, when it was 
found that despite the many obstacles strewn in bis pathway, .he 
was treading the right way toward fullSedged citizenship, when it 
was aeen that ordinary obstacles were being turned, into stepping 
stones by the despised Hegro, the unsympathizing [northerner sat 
idly by and without a diss* at ing voice saw the hot-headed revenge- 
ful southerner resort to mob taw, burnings and nightriding. Seeing 
that no one protested these drastic measures, the impulsive south' 
emer began to make laws that would atrip tho Negro of his man- 
hood rights: infamous jim crow laws, freak and unwise laws to rob 
the Negro of his right to vote; not to speak of the thousands of 
petty city and county ordinances all aimed at a people who are ex- 

Notwithstanding all of these humiliations, the America Negro 
can be counted upon to uphold the integrity of America in case of 
trouble; YES. he will regain ashe always has been, LOYAL. He 
is not looking for revenaje. for God said "VENGEANCE IS MINE" 
and the American Negro STILL believes in God. He realizes that 
even if the American white man has for ages blinded him with 
false promises and led him to hope for that dispensation of justice 
which seems but a myth.-GOD HAS EVER SEEN TRUE AND 

Bach is claiming your suffrage on his record, and of course, the 
Negro will be most interatedin those men whose hearts are right 
on the question of Equalright* to alt mca r>«ror« f A« law. This 
information should be sought diligently, that the undeserving may 
not receive your support 


Last Thursday morning as the news spread of a conspiracy 
between Germany, Mexico and Japan against the United States, a 
few of the bravest white men in the south went on the war path. 
About five hundred of them banded together and marched upon a 
poor defensteas colored woman, seized and lynched her, leaving her 
body hanging to a tree. Their victim was Emma Hooper 1 , 46 years 
old of Hammond, La. Her offense was that she beat a colored boy. 
Call on the same crowd of brave men. to defend the flag and they 
will find themselves helpless because they will not find the enemy 
tied hand and foot, and they will not have the advantage of 600 to 1. 
SracA /• Their Bravery.

William H. Harrison, being duly 
sworn .upon his oath, states that: 

I reside at SOU Plus Street, City 
of Si Louis, Missouri .That I am a 
registered and qualified voter in the 
11th Precinct of the 17th Ward, That 
no the 7th day of November, MIS, I 
served as ft Republican Judge in the 
said precinct and ward. The polling 
place is located at 3149 Lftoledo Ave. 

When Lawrence James Taylor came 
to the polling place in the early morn- 
ing, he was challenged by Chas. A. 
Mills, the Democratic Challenger, on 
the ground that he had been sent to the 
penitentiary. Tsylor was marked on 
the books u a qualified and registered 
voter. He insisted upon -voting, as did 
the Republican judges. Taylor denied 
the charge, but Mills still persisted tha t 
he would got in trouble if ha voted. 
Taylor then left the polling place. He 
walked outside where he was arrested 
at Mills' order, The charge against 
him being false registration. 

William Jenninga, of 3125. LaolOde 
Avenue, came to the polling place 
about 6:10 In tho morning. Chas. A. 
Mills, tho Democratic Challenger, laid 
that -he had ■ police charge against 
him. I asked Jennings If he had ever 
served time in the penitentiary. He 
said "no," I then asked him if he 
wished to vote and be said "Yea." I 
told him to go ahead. Mills then had 
him arrested. The officers In this poll- 
ing place seemed very anxious to make 
arrests. In the afternoon Jennings 
came back and inquired if his vote bad 
been put in tbe box. I said, "Yea." 

William Davis, of 3013 Laclede Ave., 
came to the polling plsce about seven 
o'clock in the morning.' Chas. A. Mills, 
the Democratic Challenger, had a list 
in his hand with Davis' nsme on it. 
He challenged Davis' vote and told 

trouble. Davis said hi would vote 
they hanged" him. Til

Judges It necessary to prevent ■ man 
from voting). David was then released. > 

There was another man, whose name \ 
I do not recall, whose experience waa .1 
similar to Davis'. -aJ-* ' 

When the election commissioners \ . 
visited the polls they sske.i, "What 1* 
the infttter here!" I replied that the 
Democrats had a list which they were 
using in the intimidation of Colored 
voters. Mr. Bnder then asked who the 
Democratic Challenger was. I replied 
that there were two. Mills and Casey. 
Bnder then asked who had the cre- 
dentials. Mills replied, "I have." 
Ruder .then ordered Casey to le«re. 
After the election commissioners left. 
Mills turned to me and ached me "why 
did you tell the commissioners that' I 
waa having these men arrastedt" I 
told him that I bad only mentioned 
his name as being one of rtbe Demo- 
cratic Challengers -and that Casey was 
also included, in the remark. Mills 
then, said, "That is all right, 111 see 
you on the outside," and accompanied 
thia remark by calling 'me a vile name 
which la unprintable. ' I paid no at- 
tention to this remark, bnt continued 
my work. In a few minute* he made 
aeveral other remarks a* to what he 
would do when he got me on the out- 
side. ■ I tben replied "Well, Mill*, I 
do not live here, I have to go home 
some time." Mills then said, '■Well, 
I'll see." While I was working Mill* 
made several remarks and all of them 
contained language that is unprintable.

This Handy Way of Buying Often 

Cause for Those Sleepless 

Nights of Worry. 


Every Pen on Real In* Pirt Credit 
Playi In Commerce and Bad R*- 
eult of Unpaid Bill— 9o Pay- 
Up Youra Now. 

The FTBrtlce ot having a "Pay Dp 

eek" each year baa taken well all 
over the country — and It baa now be- 
a natloual habit to consider tbe 
Impo rtnnce. In a business sense, of a 
Pay Up week. 

Too many of us get In the bnblt of 
having thlnga "charged." It It M 
handy, bo convenient — Beams like get- 
ting thing! without pay. We are all 
Inclined to feel that we are going to 
have much more money some other 
day than we Bnd'ln onr pockets today. 

The reason that Pay Op week takes 
so well la because it has been found 
of Inestimable help to the world of 
credit . One of the principal slogans 
used for the occasion has come to be: 
Til Psy My Bills, So Ton Can Pay 
Tours." A moment'* reflection win 
show wbut a eplendld thing* this us. 
Think of how many times a single dol- 
lar may torn over In a single day, 
with a practice like tola. 

You may owe tbe jeweler a dollar 
for repairing a clock; and the jeweler 
may owe the Bhoemaker a dollar for 
repairing his shoes; and the shoe- 
maker may owe the botcher a dollar 
for the but bacon he got; and thai 
butcher amy ova tbe tinner a dollar 
for tbaJMt g"*ng° on lie bejlghtr 
■awl the UWHC may owe the clothlop 
Car* ■htrt ; and tbe- clotblar may o***V 
tbe druggl*!. tat a bottle oftfteCBetne; 
and tbe druggist may owe you * dollar 
— so. doa't yon see," yon get back yoar 
dollar and wbat a wonderful lot of 
debts it baa paid In the meantime, and 
yoa anil have It. 

And yon can go on for yourself la 
this line, abowlng the illimitable good 
that a "Mt-rry Dullnr" can do In • 
day, by paving' neglected bill*. Every 
thinking person realises the part that 
credit play* In modem commerdallara 
and the baneful result of unpaid bill*. 
Credit baa been *o abominably abused 
that every bnalnea* roan and dtlien 
feel* the drag of tbe heavy credit load 
h* la forced to carry.--'

Why Many Women Will Not Wed 


To be a lovely and a rearful thins; . 
For all of their'* upon that die. I* thrown. 
And If 'ua loot Ufa ha* do moty (a brine 
To thorn but mockeries of the P*it alone.' 
Tbe majority of men believe that 
look forward to matri- 
mony aa the aoin- 
tli.ii of tbelr life 
happiness or nn- 
nspplneaa. B n t, 
let me tell yon, 
there are qolte aa 
many women who 
would not wed 
tbe beat man ever 
■tapped In shoe 
leather as those 
who are antlona 
to find heart 
mi tea. Tbe. rea- 
sons why some 
women won't wed 
are many. Not a 
few of those who 
are well-to-do 
look upon would- 
be anltora as tor- 
tone hnnfen, heartless craature* who 
are not on love Intent but are only con- 
cerned In flndlng out bow mach a wom- 
an la worth. Though a man doe* fall 
in !(*(• with auch a one, she la not in- 
clined to give his honesty of purpose 
the benefit of the doubt. 

Outer women fall In lova with ne'er> 
Co-wells, bnt are wise enough not to 
marry. Tbey solace themselves with 
courting over a long period of years. 
Onrlng that time, affection merges Into 

There's another class of women who 
will not wed— those who think that 
every man who crosses their oath Is 
not quite good enough. They are look- 
ing for .a prince or a millionaire, and 
are of the kind who will not take 
Shakespeare's advice, "Sen when yoa 
can, for youth and beauty's fleeting.'' 

Some women ur<- restrained from 
marrying because of the load which 
tbey are carrying on their shoulders, 
fearing that a husband would not ears 
to relieve them from the .support of 
aged parents or helpless younger broth- 
ers and alstera. Thus they go ttnwed- 
ded, martyrs to duty- 
vast numbe:s of women refuse good 
offers ot msrriige, for reasons that are 
ludicrous. If they were not ao pittfuL 
Absurd would be a better word for It. 
One pretty girl told mo lo all serious- 
ness that she had refused an exemplary 
young man because aha feared her at- 
tractions would fade early, aa did her 
mother's. When, her beauty went, aha 
would not be able to attract a* long- 
er. Another girl refused a fine young; 
man for the reason that ha had two 
young alstera of whom he was very 
fond. "Ha would think as much of 
them aa he did of me," she confided. 
"That would make my Ufa miserable. 
I ahall never mari^unlraa It be 'a man 
who baa nonliving relative. I could be 
reasonably sure of such a man'* un- 
divided heart.' 1 She la still alngle. Her 
Ideal man la not likely to materialise. 

These women are happy in their own 
way, no doubt. Marriage doea not tare

Work is not the tan tm tf tmm of tin, bnt the triumph ot man. Labor 
instead of being a aune ia the profound est bleetiag in life. 

Human labor then is no commodity, a thing to he bought and sold 
like cotton or com. Back of the hand ia the cUrscting brain, behind the 
■went are human ionginga, the love of human hearts, and the thirst of 
human minds. Capital, the exploiter of labor, it but the labor of yester- 
day It is canned industry. 

The unholiest combination the world has ever known ia the —Iflal. 
txmibrnation of the toil of yearbjrday, den>um*Jiised under the name of 
capital, against the throbbing, ; thrilling toil of today, the uncanned wealth 
held in solution in the sweat of today. ' 

Peace between labor and'capttsl mrill come only in a larger combine,

on "the spur . of 
the moment." The 
Christian who 
would meet emer- 
gencies wisely 
would do well to 
study how Nche- 
mlah used what 
might be termed 

emergency prayer. 

It waa unspoken

J'ji,ljxy Scrujul Cour** 

-Mi l Dtractor Of 
H tJ l4oodr little 


know. It WEB not 
formed In words, 
tie had auddenly 
been asked * a 
ejuettlori by the king aad he mult an- 
at once. Open his answer de- 
pended the folflllmeut of Ma hopes, 
the realization of Ma desires and the 
banishment of his sorrow. Everything 
depended upon the way In which he 
met this emergency. How easily and 
wisely he met It he tells us In the text, 
"I prayed to the Qod of bcaven and I 
said onto the King." 

Character of Prayer. , 
It was necessarily a short prayer 
and a very definite prayer. He had 
Do time to "boat round 
bush," he most coma to 
point at once. It waa very sudden, for 
emergencies do not allow tims for 
preparation; but they are never too 
sudden for Qod. We will nerer find 
Qod unprepared for our emergencies. 
He Is always there before th£y arrive. 
lie saya for our comfort : "Before they 
call I will answer." The writer re- 
ceived a telegram la Chicago one 
morning at 9 :28 which had been 
from ■ Pittsburgh at 9:90 the 
morning. Hs received it before It waa 
seat became of the difference in Cen- 
tral and tastern time. God betas < 
prayers before we otter them and 
■ ever ana* as todde 
that it Buds Qod unprepared. Of what 
unspeakable value if every time an 
emergency arose we could have at 
once the wisdom of omnisdeoce 
■ guide usT What confluence and assur- 
ance we would enjoy knowing Just (he 
right way to act and the .right word is 
Sty in all our. emergencies T 

They were not conducive to prayer. 
A banquet waa In progress at a 
heathen court and Nehemlsh waa In 
the midst aa the cup bearer. The 
world's festivities are not calculated to 
arouse a prayerful spirit nor are they 
aajggeatlve of prayer. The gaiety and 
laughter, the jentand song, the whole 
atmosphere of amusement In which 
Nehemlah found titmWUi would not he 
conducive to prayer. Nor did the cir- 
cumstances permit of his retiring alone 
and 'privately abutting himself away 
from audi surroundings. But bare la 
the midst of the noise surrounding the 
worldly world ha could pray. W« 
sometimes think that we could pray If 
wa could only get alone and quiet 
away from the oolae and the man of 
people. But tha value of emergency 
prayer Is to be able to have) the ear of 
Qod and to hear' the voice of God In 
the midst of 'any circumstances. No 
emergency, however suddenly IE may 
arise nor however thronged the. sur- 
roundings may be, need find us shut 
out from the Lord. 

Car-di t lam of Prays r. 
| First of ill, Nehtmlth una a man 
of habitual prayer. He wit in tha 
habit of taking everything to God 
When be heard the dlstreaalng news 
of the condition of his beloved city, 
he prayed. When bis enemies woolt 
atop his work, he prayed. When the) 
plotted and schemed* against bit lift 
be prayed. ' 

In the second pine-., Nehcmlah war 
In the habit of Bstenlag to- Qod to nil 
Word. He could remind God of bla 
promises, as his prayer In the Aral 
chapter reieals. It Is necessary U 
apeak to Uod, it la peruana more nec- 

; oasary to allow God to speak to ua

Tula parable marks the high level 
of the year of our Lord's popularity. 
It la such an Important miracle at to 
be the only one recorded to all four 
gospels. Bo sure to use a good har- 
mony. The returning twelve (Malt. 
11:1) are taken by their master to a 
desert place that they might And rest 
(hfk. 0:S1» and that he might comfort 
their hearts over the death of John the 
Baptist (Matt. 14:1-12). The multi- 
tude would not grant them the right 
use of their leisure, but flocked to ibis 
retreat to the desert.. Tbey followed 
that they might listen to bit gradous 
words, and perhaps behold tome new 
wonder (v. 3). Carlisle said he taw to 
England "forty millions, mostly fools." 
Jesus saw the multitude, and waa 
moved, not with sarcasm, but with 
compassion which took a tangible form 
of service. Mark tells us (6 :Sa) that 
Jesus waa first of ell teaching the mul- 
titude. It is better to teach a man how 
to help himself than to help the man. 
We should not be surprised at Philip's 
slowness of faith. Motes in a like 
manner waa once nonplussed aa to bow 
to feed the multitude to the wilder- 
ness. (Num. 11:21-23), It la not so 
much bow great the need nor bow lit- 
tle we possess; rather, la that little 
given over to GodT Andrew, who had 
revealed Jesus unto Peter, discovers as 
though to desperation a boy whose 
mother had thoughtfully provided bim 
with a lunch, consisting of five barley 
biscuits and two small herring <v. 6) ; 
at lesst that much remained. This is 
a great commentary upon the tide of 
Interest st this time, that the boy 
should not have eaten hit entire lancb, 
for tha boy's hunger as 1 

helplessness Of the I 
that be may show his 
mend 'Vive ye them" (Hk, *;ST) 
teabhta vm that we are' to give such 
.is w. - have, and not look to others nor 
to do our charity by proxy (Prov. 
11:24-25). Again the Savior asks bla 
dlsclplesf as though he' would teach 
them the resources of bit kingdom. 
Give what yon huv.e, and be will bless 
end Increase It to- the supplying of the 
needs of s multitude. The secret .of 
success was when he took up the 
leaves, and, ^looking up," God also saw 
that day and blessed It We need to 
observe the systematic procedure. The 
people are' seated or redlulng upon the 
ground to ranks or iu companies, the 
master blessing and breaking the boy's 
cakes, giving first to the disciples. God 
works miracles through human 
agendaa only. The result of this sys- 
tematic procedure waa that they were 
til satisfied, "filled" (v. 12). Luke 

adds that "all did eat" iLs. 9:17). Not 
alone, however, was there divine order 
and lavlshness, but there were economy 
and thrift as well, for Jesus gave care- 
ful direction as to tha fragments. The 
lavtshnesa la shown by the fact that 
tha baskets Into which the fragments 
ware gathered were each probably 
large enough to which to sleep. This 
Conservation process was a stinging 
rebuka to the Improvident oriental* 
and to present-day prodigals of that 
wonderful bounty with which Qod baa 
bleaaed oar land. Qod gives to us that 
we may use tor other. Joy diet unless 
it It shared. Jesus is tha living bread 
(John 8:48), and will satisfy hunger 
and life even as bread generates In 
the human body heat, vitality and 
power; ao be would still feed, the 
hungry soul of mankind. We have at 
hand the word, and It Is for lack of It 
that men die to the deepest, truest 
sense of that wont The poverty and 
parplaalty of the dtsdpies In his pres- 
ence and In the pretence of this great 
need are being rapeetd over and over 
today, and yet It is absurd. We have 
not enough to feed the multitude. Our 
few toavra of amusements, mental ac- 
tivities and social service will not feed 
tbeta. but when we break uoto them 
the Living Bread, they have enough 
and to spare. The diiflmlty srltb the 
distribution of material bread for the 
needs of mshkind is not that there Is 
not enough grain, but rather (bat la 
the nrocvaa of distribution 
panies of men can control thVfrults of 
the earth, and arltbhold them from the 
consumer fur their own proflL Is there 
not a parable In this. for the church In
